Welcome back to the prehistoric showdown between two of the most iconic raptors from the Jurassic franchise: In the left corner we have the Velociraptor Blue. In the right corner is the mighty Atrociraptor.

These mean killing machines will be bashing each other’s heads in for the title of the best raptor.  The Velociraptors and the Atrociraptors lived millions of years ago during the Late Cretaceous period and surely have had their fair share of fighting for dominance. 

Raptors in general were smaller in size dinosaurs but we are all lucky they are extinct as they were much more dangerous and lethal than giants like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Spinosaurus, Irritators etc. Their smaller size and their carnivorous diet made them extremely fast and well-equipped to easily catch their prey.

Let’s review the strengths and weaknesses of these prehistoric beasts, and come up to a conclusion about who would win in an imaginary battle between a Velociraptor Blue and an Atrociraptor.

Our first contender is the Velociraptor Blue.

Velociraptors were a small to medium-sized carnivorous dinosaurs that lived during the Late Cretaceous Period, around 75 to 71 million years ago. 

Velociraptors were bipedal and had a sleek, slender build with long, powerful legs and a long, stiff tail that provided balance. Something very characteristic for the Velociraptors is the large, sickle-shaped claw on the second toe of each foot, which was likely used for hunting and self-defense. They also had sharp, serrated teeth and powerful jaws that allowed them to tear flesh from their prey.

Despite their fearsome reputation, Velociraptors were actually relatively small, with an average adult size of around 6 feet (1.8 meters) long and weighing up to 100 pounds (45 kilograms).

However, in today’s episode, we are comparing not a regular Velociraptor but the one and only Velociraptor Blue from the Jurassic World movies. 

Blue is a genetically modified Velociraptor created by the InGen Corporation.

In the movies, Blue is portrayed as highly intelligent, and capable of understanding and following commands from her human handlers. Blue is also depicted as being fiercely loyal to her pack and her human allies, particularly Owen.

Blue is notable for her distinctive blue-grey coloration, which sets her apart from other Velociraptors in the movies. Her physical appearance in the films is also somewhat different from that of a real-life Velociraptor, as she is depicted as being much larger and more robust.
